"Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is an advocacy organization dedicated to sustaining and expanding U.S. support for the Global Fund's life-saving work around the world.

Created in 2004 by Edward W. Scott, the late Jack Valenti, and Adam Waldman and led by Executive Director Natasha Bilimoria, Friends supports the Global Fund by raising awareness about its lifesaving work with policy leaders and decision makers in Washington, D.C., as well as the media and the advocacy community. The goal of these efforts is to achieve both sustained governmental funding and meaningful public policy on the Global Fund and the three diseases.

Friends is the leading source of accurate, objective and timely information about the Global Fund in the United States. It rapidly addresses issues and concerns that have been raised about the Global Fund in the media and on Capitol Hill. Because of these actions, Friends has also helped build an environment of partnership and mutual support between the Global Fund and the U.S. Government's bilateral AIDS and malaria programs."
